The ChineseGovernment claims theevent easily surpassed itsambitious target of 70 millionvisitors.It's a target that we'reunlikely to see bettered,propped up as the expo wasby the largest local market;one-fifth of the world's totalpopulation.But still, 70 million people?To put that number incontext, if everyone in Italy -home to the Milan WorldExpo in 2015 - had made thetrip to Shanghai, theorganiser would still needeveryone in Greece to attendin order to equal thenumbers on the doors.It is a huge figure andtestament to the Chinesemarket's passion forexhibitions. At its launch, critics werequick to dismiss the expo asa white elephant; a chest-beating exercise increasinglyout of step with moderntrends, overshadowed byinternational spectaclessuch as the Olympics, or theFIFA World Cup.But that's not the purposeof a World Expo. The event -a cross between a trade fairand a theme park - gives theattending countries a chanceto impress the local market.It's the reason politiciansand captains of industrymade the trip to Shanghai,and the reason that theinternational expo modelcontinues to have value.Antony Reeve-CrookEditorarc@mashmedia.netwww.exhibition-world.netTwitter: ExhibitionWorldMANAGING EDITORNadia Cameronncameron@mashmedia.netEDITORAntony Reeve-Crookarc@mashmedia.netADVERTISING MANAGERAndrew Frenchafrench@mashmedia.netpublisher: Mark Brewster production:Luke Spalding, JustynaKochanska, Philippa Somerset| Nov/Dec 2010|News from around the exhibition world
